Designing Social Interfaces v2.

Designing Social Interfaces Version 2 book cover

Christian and I are currently working on a revision of the Social patterns book. We talked to Mary Treseler last year at the IA Summit – where we signed free books – about a second version and finally by December we signed our contract. This time around though, we are on a super accelerated schedule with the entire revised manuscript due March 15th.

The revisions is integrating mobile examples and specific mobile patterns and considerations into each of the patterns. We are also updating to flesh out enterprise considerations as well. We hope to also start the conversation about emerging patterns around internet of things and ambient devices and the intersection across the social experience.

I am really looking forward to seeing the full revision but you’ll be able to read the first couple of chapters in early release in a couple of weeks.
